Our long Trip

Well today is the first day back to work since our nice long trip to Iowa! It is a 12 hour drive one way from Fort Collins to Davenport! It is not so bad if you can sleep most of the way, but since I am grown now and not a kid with parents driving I figured I needed to let Bryan have some time to rest too. So I drove part of the way and Bryan drove part of the way too. But I think in the end, Bryan ended up driving more than me! What a sweet guy!

So Iowa is ok...Well I think is it alright. Palmer College is DEFINITELY small. It only has 1500 total students versus CSU's campus of 30,000 students. SO it will be different. But I think it will be a good thing fro Bryan to have smaller class sizes.

The quad cities which is comprised of Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, Moline, IL, and Rock Island, IL is quite the different "city" than Fort Collins also. There are some nice areas, but also some very RUN down areas too. We looked at some real estate to buy our first home, but I do not know how that is all going to happen. I am worried about the financial part, but Bryan seems to think we will get through it and so I have convinced myself that people everywhere go into debt and this is a REALLY good reason to go into debt...Bryan will have something to show for it in the end!

Well the weekend is here already and I should post this! I will try to get more down later!
